"In her third adventure, Marisol helps her friend Felix learn to ride a bicycle, navigates her best friend Jada's jealousy that Marisol is spending so much time with Felix, and worries about a neighbor's scary-looking German shepherd, who has gone missing. . . . Marisol is an anxious second grader, and her concerns are emotionally spot-on. . . . Approachable for young readers, featuring wide margins, plenty of white space, and an abundance of line drawings." -- Horn Book (starred review)

"After her mother teaches her how to interact with unfamiliar dogs, [Marisol] overcomes her anxiety about encountering Gregory (aka Daggers), a fierce-looking German shepherd; when he gets lost, she befriends him and helps reunite him with his owners. . . . The writing is simple enough for readers transitioning to chapter books but never simplistic when portraying characters or creating believable, involving storylines. A satisfying early chapter book for Marisol fans and new readers alike." -- Booklist

"Short and sweet, this installment is full of humor and relatability. Characters deal with friendship ups and downs and learn not to make snap judgments about people. . . . A fun read that brings only delight." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The third book in the Maybe Marisol series, and it may be the best one yet." -- The Week Junior
